2 Day - Full Moon Telica
- Duration: 210 Minutes (approx.)
- Location: Leon
Average backpack weight: 5kg
Maximum Elevation: 900m
Total Trek Distance: 22km
Minimum Age Requirement: 17+ for our public calendar trek. For inquiries regarding families and private treks, please contact us.
Watch Telica's massive crater under the full moon! In the dark the trails are well lit up by the light of the full moon! Every month when the moon is full we climb in the darkness of the night under a sky of stars to the top of this volcano.
This hike is only run when there is a full moon!
We meet at 9.30 pm for a hearty dinner (and coffee!!) before leaving León with our trusty driver at 10.30pm. After arriving in a village called San Jacinto, we begin walking through cornfields and forests with only the full moon to light our way. We arrive at the crater around four hours later, with time to take in breathtaking views of lava before the sunrise.
At the crater’s edge, we eat breakfast and take a long break to witness the sun rise over the other volcanoes of the Maribios range. We descend Telica and return to the road where our driver picks us up. We return to León around 9-10am.
As Quetzaltrekkers is a non-profit organisation, all of the proceeds of this trek go to our scholarship fund which gives at-risk youths in Leon an opportunity to go to school. Thank you for supporting our mission!
